Plaque at sculptor’s home
A BLUE plaque has been unveiled at the house of Kerridge sculptor Alfred Gatley to mark the 200th anniversary of his birth.
Representatives from Bollington Civic Society and Bollington Town Council which paid for the plaque unveiled it on Spring House, Oak Lane, where he was born.
Sandra Edwards, from the civic society, said: “He was a famous sculptor and his father worked a stone quarry in Kerridge hill. Examples of his work can be seen in several places locally including Gawsworth Hall where owner Timothy Richards is a descendant of the Gatley family.”
